Re: Unloved search

GSAK has filters built in that you can specify a value for "Not Found during the last _____ days." Project GC has something called 'Lonely' caches - but this only shows the value of the age of the cache in days / number of finds. Would be a pretty cool feature. I haven't seen it on other sites but d...

Re: 2019 enhancements in a nutshell

Thanks for all the work done this year. Love that the site exports GGZ from Queries. Also, thanks to all the cache owners out there that put some of their hides on this site, rather than the other one. I hope in 2020 that more cachers hear about the crazy bunch over here in GCA land and decided to c...

Re: Norfolk Island

There are a few trigs listed on an old map dated 1934 ( https://nla.gov.au/nla.obj-232790462/view ). Who knows what they classified as a trig though. One called 'Buffet's Pole' was probably just that. A pole. Would be interesting to explore the island and check out these spots. Apparently there was ...

Re: dragonZone Research Tasks

Sign me up in helping the Head Guardian figure out what all these mysterious happenings are about. I'm sure we will get to the bottom of it.

Re: Report Site Issues Here

I’ve found a couple of unlisted trigs lately and have created listings for them. I always enter “Geocaching Australia” in the Placed By field. Once I’ve entered all the details and submitted the listing, it goes live, but with two published logs. One dated 1/6/2019., and the other with the date expe...

Re: Games Suggestions - Golf Theme

I think this sounds like fun. I wonder if there’s a way of putting in a few unexpected surprises/penalties. E.g. a chance that players will get less/more than points than they were expecting. Weather it be random, or a gamble they can opt in for. Maybe if they find a certain cache type, they will ge...

Re: Geocaching Australia Senate - Feb 19

Hi, I'm Matt, I'm 39 - from Lismore, northern NSW and have been hunting little containers with my GPS since 2010. I regard GCA as my primary site for quality geocaching. I love the stats, the games and the community that we have here. I've sat in the background for quite a while however I do like to...

Re: Site Outage 9/1/2019

We really are lucky have developers with so much talent. What could have been an absolute disaster has been managed and fixed and now we're all back playing the game. Geocaching for me revolves around GCA - the stats, the caches, the games and the people here all put it well ahead of any other geoca...

Re: Dinosaur Moveable Game September 2018

I'll be in town tomorrow morning, I think a Tweed Bar view sounds like a great spot for Breakfast! I think any dinosaur hidden at the Kirra lookout would be reasonably well hidden from the average muggle, but there are some smart ones amongst them. That park look immaculate last time I was there. I ...

Re: Dinosaur Moveable Game September 2018

If the early spotting is a reference to the collection of the Relay Around Australia moveable by one Samboo Bear, yes I know about that one. He was tempted to see if there were other moveables in that area but I reminded him that if he actively searched for them, then that was against the rules and...

Re: Dinosaur Moveable Game September 2018

There is a stegosaurus eagerly waiting for the 1st of September at the back of Palm Beach. Is that far enough south? I hadn't planned on hiding anything further south because I thought the distance might have been limiting to currently known GCA participants. But if there is a small contingent of d...

Re: Dinosaur Moveable Game September 2018

Going to Brisbane close to the end of the Month so will be able to place a dinosaur on the southside where I know there is one or two active GCA Geocachers, so here is hoping. Hoping to find a few in Gold Coast or Northern NSW. I think there's a few of us jurassic geocachers hiding dinosaurs in the...
